The European Space Agency (ESA) held this Friday (2) First creature from Mars. As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Mars Express mission, almost an hour of live footage of the neighboring planet has been shown.
“Almost” is there because of the time it takes for the image capture signal to reach Earth. “This will be as close as you can get to a live view of the red planet,” the agency said in a statement.
The broadcast started at 13:00 (Brazilian time). Initially, ESA expected to get a new image of Mars every 18 minutes, but was surprised by its 1 minute faster arrival. The timing was considered 17 minutes of the photograph’s journey to Earth plus one minute to be placed in the air.
Watch live from Mars:
The quality of the photos is not the best, because The visual tracking camera or Visual Tracking Camera (VMC) on the orbiter is already 20 years old. The Mars Express mission was launched on June 2, 2003. He studies Mars’ atmosphere and surface, capturing details in three-dimensional images.
Some of the viewers, who showed interest in the live broadcast of ESA from Mars, expressed their great satisfaction with what they saw. “What a wonderful time to be alive. I never imagined that I would live long enough to reach my mid-seventies and actually be able to see a vivid image of the Red Planet,” said Science Fan. .
